Via the ever-watchful Bomber Girl, another strange photo choice from the dude who edits the White House Facebook page.
Photo of the Day: President Barack Obama and President Nicolas Sarkozy of France have a discussion in the Blue Room of the White House before their joint press availability, March 30, 2010. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)
Really? That does not look much like a discussion to me. What do you think is really going on?
That's a classic conversation between a Frenchman and an American. The French have a very small zone of personal space. Americans have a very large zone of personal space. Sarkozy is engaging Obama in his comfort zone of personal space. From Obama's perspective, Sarkozy is invading his personal space.
In preparation for their joint press conference, President Obama and President Sarkozy could not break the Rock/Rock tie in an epic Rock, Paper, Scissors match as to who will take the first question at the aforementioned press conference.
